The Rapture: The Blessed Hope of The Child of God, part 3
We believe that Jesus Christ is going to return in the clouds for His church before the tribulation that is coming on the whole earth, and that He will return with His saints and all His holy angels to the earth at the end of the tribulation, and set up His kingdom on earth, for 1000 literal years, then after the Final Judgement, ruling and reigning forever and ever thru eternityWe believe that the nation of Israel has a special place in God's plan, and that all of the promises of God to Israel will be fulfilled. Because Jesus died and rose again, He will also come again as He promised. He will come in the air with all the souls and spirits of those who, through the years, have died in Christ, those who have gone home to be with Christ - absent from the body and present with the Lord - in soul and spirit form. Jesus will come in the air with these redeemed souls. This is what Paul calls The Blessed Hope, Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour, Jesus Christ. (Titus 2:13).
